" Raven, a MOAO science demonstrator for the Subaru Telescope "

Celia Blain & Olivier Lardiere

(University of Victoria)

Raven will be the first Multi-Object Adaptive Optics (MOAO) technical and science demonstrator installed on an 8 m class telescope. Developed by the University of Victoria, in partnership with NAOJ, HIA and Tohoku University, Raven uses 3 NGSs and 1 LGS to reconstruct a 3D model of the turbulence above the telescope and offers the capability to correct two independent science FoVs of 4" within a 3.5' field of regard. Raven will be brought up to the Nasmyth IR plateform of Subaru Telescope in May 2014 for a first set of engineering test. In this talk, we will give a technical overview of the system and will introduce the science cases currently under development for the Raven project.

Seminars are also held at JAC, CFHT, and IfA.
